My first hike on the ridge. It is a pleasant trail with excellent desert flora. Wonderful views of the Catalina range. Most will prefer pants for the current tall grass. Only a couple catclaw bushes nagging above 5k.

The highlight of the day was the perfect weather. Puffy clouds, cool temps, light breezes and clear views. Plenty of other hikes I prefer around Tucson. Nevertheless it's good to learn up on some new terrain!

Carried 3 quarts, almost used 1.

Few areas with some nondescript yellow daisy clusters.

The green seed capsules on desert cotton bushes look plump! Probably ready to turn brown soon?
